Educating in STEM goes further than a simple understanding of the physical sciences or problem solving using computers and circuits. When we teach STEM, it is becoming integral to consider the cultural context in which STEM careers and applications find themselves being used. By exploring with students the specific ways that they interact with technology every day, STEM becomes more relatable and relevant.
